When you picture sweet jars, you probably think of rows of them lined up filled with delicious treats in the old sweet shop on the corner from your childhood. However, nowadays, not only are glass and plastic sweet jars perfect for storing all your favourite goodies and satisfying a sweet tooth, but they are also the perfect gift, storage solution and stylish addition to your home!

Here at Keep It Sweet we have a large selection of both Plastic and Glass Sweet Jars available, which are perfect for storing all your favourite sweet treats in. Take a trip down memory lane with Vintage Plastic Sweet Jars, just like the ones you’ll remember from the old sweet shop in the village, to a range of brightly coloured lids to jazz up your jar and add a fun decorative twist to your snack storage! One of our most popular plastic sweet jars is our 1 litre jar. This jar is the perfect in-between size for storing sweet treats for the family, giving the perfect memorable and unique gift or for storing bits and bobs around the house. A family sweet jar is not only the perfect way to reward the kids and unwind after a long day, but also looks great as a colourful table centre piece. Why not treat the family to some of your childhood favourite sweets and take them on a trip down memory lane? Take a look here at some of our traditional sweets to back plenty of nostalgic memories!

Bon Bons are one of the most iconic retro sweets of all time and are loved by all ages. Having made a comeback in recent years, these old-time favourites are the perfect sweet treats for the whole family and look great displayed in a plastic sweet jar. One of our favourite flavours is Rhubarb and Custard Bon Bons. This fun twist on a classic favourite sure knows the way to our hearts! However, if this is not taking your fancy, there is also plenty of other flavours, including everything from apple to chocolate, to choose from.

Another great use of plastic sweet jars is as a gift. Why not fill one a jar with somebody’s favourite retro sweets and complete with their favourite coloured lid and some ribbon for a unique and personal gift that is sure to put a smile on anyone’s face. Or, if you’re are stuck for ideas or feeling spoiled for choice, why not take a look at our range of ready filled, themed Sweet Jars. With everything from Christmas Jars to Spooky Jars to choose from, there is sure to be a plastic sweet jar for every occasion, or simply take a look for some inspiration.

Our Girls Sweetie Jar is one of our most popular jars and is the perfect gift for a female friend or sweet-toothed lady in your life! Available in 3 different sizes to suit every budget, this plastic sweet jar is filled with loads of sugary treats including Chewits, Hubba Bubba, Malteasers and many more that are sure to brighten anyone’s day. Or our Sweet and Sour Jar is perfect for anyone with a taste for all things tangy! Packed with delicious treats including Toxic Waste, Zappers and Mega Sour Balls, this bumper filled jar is sure to get your taste buds tingling and your eyes watering - just be sure not to eat it all at once!

Along with Plastic Sweet Jars, we also stock a range of tongs, scoops and paper bags in various colours. Why not create your very own traditional sweet shop for a party, event or even a mini one at home to treat the kids (and adults!). Simply choose the jars you want - from small 250ml jars or larger 3 litre jars to cater for larger numbers and then get to the fun part…choosing the sweets! Creating your very own sweet jar is not only a fun and exciting twist to add to any party or wedding, but, is also perfect for sticking to a theme or colour scheme. For example, Mini Love Hearts are the perfect sweets to celebrate the big wedding day with!

Another classic old school sweet to fill a sweet jar with is Fruit Salads. These delicious fruity chews are an old childhood classic and are one of the most popular and well-loved retro sweets of all time. Packed full of a distinctive pineapple and raspberry flavour, these sweets are sure to get your mouth watering and your taste buds tingling! The only downside to these traditional favourites is that, despite the name, these fantastically fruity treats sadly don’t count as one of your five a day L. Why not try them alongside Black Jacks – another icon delight.

Sweet Jars are the perfect gift for any sweet toothed pal or family member and is a unique way to show somebody your appreciation. However, if that person is anything like us, the sweets won’t stay in the jar for too long! That’s why sweet jars also make the perfect stylish storage solution to store everything from dry kitchen goods to all the odd bits and bobs that never seem to find a home. Our Glass Jars, as beautiful as they are, may not be the safest if you have small kiddies (or clumsy adults) running around so Plastic Sweet Jars are the perfect alternative. (They’re also cheaper too - meaning even more pennies to spend on sweets!)
